Kitesurf School

The BEST Kitesurfing school in Alvor, Algarve-Portugal

Kitesurf School Alvor

KitesurfSchool Alvor, we offer kitesurfing lessons from our experienced IKO & Portuguese Sailing Federation qualified instructors in groups of up to 2 people with full insurance in the lagoon of Alvor.

We teach on the super friendly Best Roca and all the latest material from Best Kiteboarding.

Lessons run for 3 hours a day and take place in the lagoon where you are surrounded by nothing but sand and water (no buildings, trees, rocks and other hazards).

The beginner course is 3 days of lessons, by which stage students are usually up and riding short distances and bitten by the kitesurf bug!

We have a safety boat for transport to the spot and rescues at high tide.

Below is an idea of what you will learn in your lessons but we are flexible and can tailor the lessons to any ability and level if you have had lessons before or for learning at your own speed.

A normal day In general the NW wind only blows in the afternoon and you can expect from 15 to 25 knots. We meet at the kiteschool around 1 or 2 pm, depending on the tide and wind forecast, and then we take you by boat to the kitespot at the lagoon. We always confirm the meeting time on the previous day. What you will learn. We always adapt the lesson to your needs. It means that after a chat with your instructor he will see what you know and what you don’t know and go on from there. Sometimes a quick refresh is enough for you to feel confident again and progress faster.

If it’s your first time the lessons will be step by step with all the safety and the support you need. You will progress at your own pace, as you will be fully equipped for the entire lesson. No sharing or waiting!

When choosing the Kitesurf Schooll!!!!

Make sure the school you choose has certified kitesurfers instructors, a boat always available at the spot, so the instructor is not swimming after you (rescue). And that you get the time of the lesson that you are paying with equipment (kite), or you will find yourself waiting half of the time.
